Hope some experienced roadies can help me out on this one I recently bought a second hand roadie off ebay, and promptly took it out for my first road ride at the weekend. Apart from being thoroughly knackered out after the first 20 minutes (my asthma was playing up!) I found that I was pretty uncomfortable with the distance of the hbars, but im not sure how to go about getting comfortable. The stem at the moment is 100mm, which has had to be raised by spacers and turned upside down to raise it even more. I also feel like I need it to be closed, with 80mm looking about right. Problem is - I dont want to spend a load of money just to find it isnt the right solution, and then have a load of parts I dont need anymore So how does a new road rider go about getting comfy on their bike?
